1983 RETURN OF THE JEDI Weequay: Trilogo Update

In 1984, new packaging for Star Wars figures was introduced for the European market. A cost containment initiative, the new packaging sported three languages of the Return Of The Jedi logo for a “one size fits all” approach. Although a “three-logo” design was created for The Power Of The Force line (as evidenced on some ‘boxed’ toys), it wasn’t carried over to the basic figure line’s card design. They continued to use the three Return Of The Jedi logos instead. Although the word “Trilogo” is found nowhere on the packaging, the term is universally adopted by all Star Wars collectors to describe this line of figures.

1982 THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 4-LOM: Foreign ROTJ Update

Today we revisit 4-LOM. 4-LOM wasn’t part of the Trilogo line. We’re showing one of the foreign Return Of The Jedi card back instead. 4-LOM was a late release in 1982 because it was first offered as the line’s mail-away figure that year.

Review: BB Units [Red/Black] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

We finish up the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. It’s a disappointing development. Let’s conclude with the BB Units [Red/Black] set. (more….)

Review: BB Units [White/Purple] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. It’s a disappointing development. We continue looking at these with the BB Units [White/Purple] set. (more….)

Today we revisit Bespin Security Guard [B]. It didn’t come in standard Trilogo packaging. Instead, it was packaged in what the collecting community deems as “Trilogo Hybrid” packaging. The card front is nearly identical to the Kenner Return Of The Jedi Bespin Security Guard [B] figure, while the back features the Trilogo logo and figure group shot. The review’s Collector Notes are updated with this information. See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1982’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Bespin Security Guard [B] figure HERE.

Today we revisit Luke Skywalker (Hoth Battle Gear). Luke Skywalker (Hoth Battle Gear) is noticeably different than its Kenner counterpart. It looks as if the film-out was bleached it’s so light.

Today we revisit 2-1B. Too-Onebee (2-1B) received a name change. But more noticeable is the significant orange wash the card art received for the Trilogo card back. The crop of the character is also different. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK 2-1B figure HERE.

Before we start the final wave, let’s look at the novelty figure of 2006. George Lucas (In Stormtrooper Disguise) has charm. We updated the figure in our newly revised review, complete with new text and photos and Visual Guide.

Today we revisit AT-AT Driver. AT-AT Driver perhaps has the strangest alternate still image than any other Trilogo figure. For reasons unknown, Kenner airbrushed out the figure’s detail below the helmet. There is nothing but a white “blue” shaped to look like chest armor. Again, it’s one of the strangest updates made to a figure’s card art. See the full Trilogo card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK AT-AT Driver figure HERE.

Today we revisit Leia (Hoth Outfit). Leia (Hoth Outfit)’s Trilogo card art features an alternate image used nowhere else in the classic toy line. Finding a high-resolution version of it is next to impossible as well. It’s one of the rarest film-out images in the Lucasfilm archives. They also changed the character’s name to Princess Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit). See the full card art and additional notes by revisiting 1981’s THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK Leia (Hoth Outfit) figure HERE.
